What is a pronoun

A pronouns is a small word that takes the place of a noun in a sentence. We can use a pronoun instead of a noun. When we use pronouns, we don't have to repeat the same noun every time we refer to it, and pronouns help sentences flow more smoothly and make them easier to say.

Examples:

Mary and John have asked for volunteers to help Mary and John paint Mary and John's house.

OR, using pronouns:

Mary and John have asked for volunteers to help them paint their house.

Sandy got a new puppy. Sandy's new puppy got Sandy's new puppy's paws in the mud and tracked Sandy's new puppy's muddy footprints all over Sandy's kitchen floor.

OR, using pronouns:

Sandy got a new puppy. Her new puppy got his paws in the mud and tracked his muddy footprints all over herkitchen floor.

The kinds of pronouns are:

personal pronouns; I, you, we, he, she, it, me, us, him, her, they, them.

demonstrative pronouns: this, that, these, those.

possessive pronouns: mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours, theirs.

possessive adjectives: my, your, his, her, their, its.

interrogative pronouns: who, whom, what, which, whose.

reflexive pronouns: myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself, ourselves, yourselves, themselves.

intensive pronouns: reflexive pronouns used to emphasize.

reciprocal pronouns: each other, one another.

relative pronouns: who, whom, whose, which, that.

indefinite pronouns: all, another, any, anybody, anyone, anything, both, each, either, enough, everybody, everyone, everything, few, fewer, less, little, many, more, most, much, neither, nobody, no one, nothing, none, one, other, others, several, some, somebody, someone, something, such, and they (people in general).

More example Sentences:

David reads the paper;he reads it every morning.

The pronoun 'he' replaces the noun 'David' and 'it' replaces 'paper'.

The boys didn't make the team and they were very sad.

The pronoun 'they' replaces the noun 'boys'.

Jane sent her mother yellow roses which are herfavorite flowers.

The relative pronoun 'which' replaces the noun 'roses' and the possessive adjective 'her' stands in for the possessive noun 'Jane's'.

If your boyfriend had blue eyes as a baby an brown eyes when he got older an you have blue eyes what color of eyes would the baby have

More than likely blue at first then changing to a brown or browny-blue. Most babies start off with blue eyes, but blue is a recessive however brown is a dominent gene.

A baby's eyes are first blue because they have not developed fully yet. they then change color or stay the same after three months. it is more likely that the baby would have brown eyes. it also depends on your parents eyes and his parents eyes. if most of them have brow. the baby would most likely have brown eyes.
